Caring for Your Vegetable-Tanned Leather
Keep your leather away from heat sources and never blow-dry it. Don't use brushes with synthetic bristles to clean it — only natural bristles should be used. Use oil or conditioner made specifically for leather weekly if the item is used frequently.
Caring for Your Chrome-Tanned Leather
